View Full Version : Tour 9VE, Type S, or LM Radical...best racquet?

A couple of buddies of mine were having a discussion on these three racquets:

Pro Kennex Heritage Type S

Head Liquidmetal Radical Midplus

Volkl Tour 9 V-Engine

I've tried the Tour 9 VE and the LM Radical and the SX version of the Heritage so of course I had to put my 3 cents worth into the conversation.

I said that, based on my experience with the SX version, the Type S would be the most powerful of the three. They both said that the LM Radical MP would be the most powerful.

We also disagreed on the best of the three for groundstrokes...I said the Pro Kennex would be the best based on power and spin potential but they said the Head because of the better control and "it was more powerful."

We pretty much agreed on most of the other categories:
Spin Potential: Pro Kennex
Control: Head
Maneuverability: Volkl
Volleys: Head (although they had to talk me into this one - I first said Pro Kennex because of the extra pop)
Comfort: Head

So, anyone want to chime in with your opinions on which of these three racquets is the most power (and the better racquet if you want to go there also)?

I own a LM radical and am finding that it is very good all around. Check out the reviews on here about it.
